, i learned on the campaign trail. there's always a winner and loser. the political environment just like the business world, is highly competitive. with every campaign season there's always a new crop of start-ups. innovation incubators. and so, i guess the campaign is a little bit of an entrepreneurial showcase. i think a lot of us think we see these ads and i guess keeping the campaign is disliked a big marketing machine that spits out the ads we see on tv and the candidates are sending mail to us an e-mail to our in box and the phone calls and so forth. but if you peel back the curtain, you might find something. a something difference you find a very complex, highly detailed operation. there's a million things happening at once. there are things happening around the candidates, there are things happening around the headquarters operations, things happening in field offices. everything from where a candidate will stay, who will stand with the candidates, what site he should choose for that and how many people should come to the event and right down to the helium in the balloons an
you could even say we're a little bit ambitious. right. you come in to the environment, many people came in without a job. they were volunteers and want to get a job. some people -- they want to get noticed by the right people. and they, you know, and you have people who have been hired who want maybe more responsibility. right than they probably traditional in their job. and the department heads who are racing against each other maybe to get a little more budget than the other and get a little more turf than the others and you might expect. you have the thing going on it's a chaotic time. you need to get control of this. because, you know, in this environment, where there no sort of norms, it's like building -- it is like building a village from scratch. everybody comes to a place with no rules or enormous, no structures, right, it's like the wild west. and not everybody, you know, some people who, you know, have their own tactics for getting their own way. right. sometimes even good people lose control of the inner jerks. it's a problem early in the campaign. we all have them. com
to be thrown into the chaotic, swirling environment of a dense neighborhood in jakarta, indonesia, not knowing the language, not knowing anything, looking a little different. he had to fend for himself. every step along the way, there was some aspect, deep aspect of him where he was alone. >> narrator: then, when he was ten, his mother sent him to hawaii to live with his grandparents. >> i think it's natural to assume that your father be absent, then form a relationship with your stepfather, and then be separated from him and be separated from your mother and go live with your grandparents who at that point you don't really know that well... it must have been profoundly unsettling. >> his early life is a constant stream of people leaving, of him being left. his mother, his father, his grandparents constantly moving. his whole life is really a, sort of a classic search for home. >> narrator: they lived in a small two-bedroom high-rise apartment in honolulu. >> his grandfather was a heavy drinker. what surprised me as i was researching my book was actually the president himself telling me that h
're the best environment for the talent spent before we go to questions, jay, then i want to talk about campaign financing. >> so you're looking at california right now, and that massive increase in the cost of gasoline, when matt said, when consumers are paying for gasoline they are not able to purchase their basic commodities every day. so what's happening? governor brown is proposing a relaxation of regulations that impact the energy industry. that is clearly a concession that regulation drives the cost of energy. we've got to have that same focus and discussion here in washington. because what's happening in california can happen all across this country. >> hawaii, i heard -- >> when we do the big deal everybody thinks we have to do entitlements and defends on one side and taxes on the other. if you have a school pashtuns do with two legs he usually falls over. if we look at what the canadians did with their cash cow, we have more cash cow in energy than any of them. and we can do spending. we can do taxes, and we can to energy which is our cash cow if we go to and you can make a re

the environment? caller: i would definitely like to see the moderator not let them ramble on. host: so you want time constraints? caller: yes, definitely. i was so disappointed that people are not looking beyond words, because anyone can say anything. host: this was a style section of the washington post this morning about the role of the moderator -- that was about the moderator. the washington times this morning as a piece thishow president obama attended mark their ballotss -- attended martha raddatz's mary stuart ex- husband and some are concerned that she will be biased tonight. now a call from a democratic viewer. caller: my take on this is i hope that joe biden acts exactly like president obama. president obama and acted like he was the president. he could not be rattled by mr. mitt romney. and i hope that vice-president biden does the same, and i think he will. ryan just is not old enough. he does not have enough experience to be vice president or president. neither one of them should be president. host: this is the washington post with this headline -- caller: i don't think that he was

the economy in an environment, it's difficult to reduce expenses because a lot of expenses of liquids and economic situation that one related to unemployment benefits. in terms of the financial sector, we have to address a problem of pressure, sending, a problem of capacity and a problem of governance and transparency. most of this issue aren't linked with the savings banks. by definition, they were operating with a degree of concentration with real estate, but there's a lot of albums for these things. in terms of funding, there was working with a stronger to touchÉ and with the capacity in the course of 10 minutes a weaker segment of the sector was much more effective to as a problem throughout the system overcapacity. this is at the overcapacity in the spanish financial site are we'll be in the region of 30%. in this problem is going to be address because as a result of the injection of private sector money, the process is going to take in terms of their restructuring of the sector and is going to alter banks that have been the objects of private sector money injection to restructu
? so you come into this environment. many people came in without a job. they're just volunteers and they want to get a job. some people, so they want to get noticed by the right people. and they, you know, and you have people who have been hired who want maybe more responsibility, right, and they probably traditional in their job. you have department heads who are racing against each other to maybe get a little more budget than the other and get a little more turf than the others than you might expect. you have this thing going on where it is a very chaotic time and you really need to get control of this because in this environment where there are no sort of norms, it is like building a village from scratch where everybody comes to a place with no rules, no norms, no structures, right? it's like the wild west and not everybody, you know, some people who, you know, have their own tactics for getting their own way, right? sometimes even good people lose control of their inner jerks. that is a problem early in the campaign, right? we all have them, come on. so you throw an elbow at
environment. >> the capstone concept forward says the world is trending towards greater stability, yet it says the world is potentially more dangerous than ever. how will the stability overcome the threat? >> well, you know, when people ask me about afghanistan, the first thing i normally tell them is it's possible for violence and progress to coexist in places like afghanistan. i'd say the same thing about the paradox of stability and threat. they coexist. so i've talked about a security paradox which is violence is at an evolutionary low. and it is, except that the capabilities to impart violence are in the hands of people who heretofore wouldn't have had access to them. so you have a paradox of feeling as though the world is -- this is kind of the tom friedman the world is flat and connected and, therefore, is less likely to fight each other. maybe. but there's also the other school of thought that says it's in the unconnected parts of our globe where violence will be both more prevalent, but also more violent because the instruments of violence are more available now than they've ever been
to bring vocational education back to the schools. we need to start creating an environment in our schools where the child is not on an educational path for college, they are on the path for vocational training and have a chance to have a solid life with education. we need to empower classrooms and redirect some of the dollars out of the administration in the classroom. >> thank you for the question. other than public safety, there is nothing that the state does that is more important than educating our kids. we have made great progress in a recent years. graduation rates are up, test scores are up. but we have a long way to go. 20% of our schools got a great of -- grade of c or lower. there is nothing that can't be fixed if we give parents more choices and the teachers more freedom to teach. i agree with my competitors and say that in addition to the aspect of our road map, that called for greater emphasis on math and reading, i think the time has come when the priority for every high school in indiana again, we lay out a road map. >> thirty second rebuttals. >> any changes will have to
to make in this environment. let's bring in panel. bill kristol editor of "weekly standard." kirsten powers for daily beast. syndicated columnnist charles krauthammer. bill, start with the libya and go from there in this debate. >> i think that was the great opening, great failure of joe biden in this debate. not only did he not improve what was a tenuous and tough contradictory story of the administration on what they knew about what happened in benghazi and when they knew it, he made it much worse. he is now accomplished other minor things in the debate, i suspect by the end of this weekend, main take-away from the debate could well be that benghazi was worse than we thought in terms of the incompetence of the administration and deception by the administration after the murder of the ambassador and the other americans. >> it seems like it's permeated the national consciousness. "new york times" saying it should have been on a-1. a lot of people talking about it. it seem like it's gotten the point of wait a second, what is the deal here? >> this is finally getting people's attention
for voluntary action have fallen short. what secretary panetta said in a pre-9/11 environment we had warning to do something. he's pointing to cyberspace right now in that same way. remember, larry, i was there, and i saw those warnings and the cyberspace were in the same space. nbc news terrorism analyst, thank for helping us out. ? you bet. up, in, mitt romney won last week's debate big time. he became a game changer. what's the case he made to reelect barack obama? no one seems to know that including obama himself. that's next on "the kudlow report." ♪ [ male announcer ] the first look...is only the beginning. ♪ ♪ introducing a stunning work of technology. ♪ introducing the entirely new lexus es. and the first ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. >> there was also one person on the stage when actually asked what he'd do to get the economy going again had an answer. he laid out our five-point plan to get this economy going and the other candidate, of course, just attacked. but the american people are looking for answer, not attacks. >> welcome back to "the kudlow repo
. and an incredible, beautiful environment and also in an interesting election season to say the least. our first award for the evening -- before we get to that, i have to start it was a joke. can i start out with a joke? joe biden. sorry, that's the joke. [applause] followed by another joke, nancy pelosi. sorry. as an ardent practicing catholic. sorry. i was told by friends of "saturday night live" but i do the best nancy pelosi impersonation, but i'm still waiting for that bet they are going to me and "saturday night live." he seemed to avoid goofy liberal spirits on the republicans they do over there. our first award to the evening is the obama got some award. i can't believe i'm actually saying that. troubling. for about 25 years come in the media research center has been documenting every idiocy we know from the media as they celebrate one liberal hero after another. and let me just say, the people we are going to be talking about, they love politicians who want to raise your taxes, right? they love politicians who want to expand the nanny state and are going to check all the boxes here. the
the environment and something that was set in the debate last week. the president had the lead on energy and he said we were dealing now more than ever for gas and oil and he's right. then mr. romney came back with our bottle saying, mr. president, are drilling more for gas and oil, but it's not due to your policy. then he went on to say that because we are not drilling on federal and. why the president did not jump on that, i don't know. all the president would have to have said, was, mr. romney, do you think the american public would condone drilling in yellowstone? do you think the american public would condone drilling in yosemite? i just sat back from fly-fishing in montana and i was on federal land fly-fishing. i was on federal land where nothing is going on and i enjoyed that. i don't want to be fly-fishing next to an oil well or fracking liquid that is stored in pits that is poisonous. i just don't understand mr. romney saying we should be drilling like crazy on federal land. that just goes to show how he is uneducated about the circle of life in the natural environments. that's all i h
political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as the democratic party chair, in some ways, being the partisan chief of the party. what would you say to virginians that would convince them that when you go to washington, you'd be not partisan and not simply a loyal lieutenant in harry reid's army. >> i will tell you two things. i served with two presidents. i serve with president bush and president obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. tho
in the economic environment, is the fundamental reason that central planning cannot work, even apart from the adverse implications of central planning for individual freedom. we use market institutions to allocate resources because doing so maximizes aggregate wealth. we don't use market institutions to allocate and reallocate resources in order to preserve jobs in any given industry. therefore, the structural unemployment that results from reductions in defense outlays is irrelevant and politically, even if it is highly relevant politically. to the extent that reductions in defense outlays reflect an improvement in international security environments, that improvement in yields an increase in national wealth in exactly the same sense that a reduction in crime does the same. while increased employment in a given economic sector or increased unemployment, rather, in a given economic sector is painful for those subjected to economic losses, it is not a loss for the economy as a whole, because the reallocation of resources in response to changes in relative prices increases the aggregate pro
a meritorious environment, right? we're already past a place where race is like the thumb on the scale, right? >> i guess i would put it differently. i would say it's not a rigid quota. it can operate as a plus factor, but to some people would be viewed as a thumb on the scale. the brief that was sort of moving to me in looking at the case going -- o the fisher going up to the supreme court, oral arguments are on wednesday, is a brief written by deans of harvard and yale. notice that harvard and yale are where anine of the justices graduated. when we do admissions, we do a holistic merit-based analysis. if we build a diverse class, racial diversity is one component of that excellence. don't take our word for it. go to mckenzie and mckenzie has done amazing consulting work with fortune 500. again, we can have queasiness about whether or not that's a metric, whether it's a social justice issue, engaging in mediation rather than this is good for the bottom line. going back to the 2003 case, the briefs moving to sandra day o'connor, it was now being swapped out by alito which is why many are worr
a lot of friends. and in an incredible, and in a beautiful environment and also in an interesting election season to say the least. our first award for the evening is -- wait, before we get to the. i had to start off wit with a je or can i start off with a joke? joe biden. sorry, that's a joke. followed up by another joke. nancy pelosi. oh, sorry. as an ardent practicing catholic. sorry. i was told by my friends at sun not like that i do the best nancy pelosi impersonation but i'm still waiting for that, you know, that bit they're going to write for me at "saturday night live." they avoid doing the actual bits about goofy liberals. it's all republicans that they do over there. our first award of the evening is the obama gas him a war. i can believe i'm actually saying this. troubling. now this is rich history. for about 25 years they read -- media research center has been document every pc from the media as they celebrate one liberal hero after another. and let me just say that people we're going to be talk about tonight, they love politicians who, want to raise your taxes, right?
considerable support to the department of state security posture in this uncertain and volatile environment. the sst's mission was to support and answer to the chief of mission in libya. i worked directly for the regional security officer. we provided security support, medical support, communications support, for every facet of security that covered the embassy. as the sst commander i had a seat on the country team. i was closely involved with the operational planning and support to the rsoes, security objectives. the embassy staff lived and worked together at two locations in, in tripoli and embassy property in benghazi. the sst supported security movements for diplomatic officers in and around trip lowellpy and other parts of libya as their work required. on two occasions i sent sst members to benghazi to support and bolster security at that location. the ss. it was closely integrated with regular diplomatic security agents working directly for the rso as well as mobile security deployment teams. i traveled to benghazi on two occasions with the rso. ones with the rso to evaluate the secur
the ballot measures in 34 states, abortion rights, same sex marriage, the environment, legalizing marijuana, everything is on these ballots so everybody has to not just do the candidates, they have to vote on the ballot issues. and by the way, on that little gender gap, do not worry, there is a genre gap. it's been there every time since 1980. and it is the voice -- we got the woman's vote but for so long they said they vote but all they do is vote according to men's pocketbook. no, that was wrong when i was taught it in my political science classes and it's very wrong now. women are voting their own interest on medicaid, family planning, reproductive rights. i could go on. and that measure -- when you hear that it's disappeared, don't believe that. it has not disappeared. it is the difference between men and women's votes and it's measureable. and it's based not on good looks but on positions on issues. and it will be there, it is there. and always when you hear all these polls, look at the combination of how many democrats they're putting in, how many young people, how many people are col

did, it really comes out very powerful. you can't control the environment in the way that you could before. >> no. and we remember with hillary clinton, they were saying that obama didn't look up, but he didn't look up in that debate with hillary clinton. >> right. >> again, that is who he is. i think we are totally for getting that. >> not only that, but i think we're also for getting that both of these men, to your point, they were who they always have been, even in governing. barack obama has infuriated his own base because of this perception that he doesn't fight hard enough. >> recurrent theme. >> it's a recurrent theme. with mitt romney the recurrent theme among republicans, the reason he doesn't have a lot of frentsds in his party is the idea that he's a vicious debater. newt gingrich called him a liar in which he demolished supposedly the best debater in the republican party and he is known to be a flip-flopper. what did he do in that debate, he flip-flopped. everybody played the type. >> dedrick's point is smart about mitt romney in some ways was the beneficiary of lowered
. if there is demand, that means the housing environment is better. many more people are needing to rent housing than in the recent past. maybe we are getting to more normal balance between people for whom buying a home makes sense and those for whom it's not the right decision at this time. so that has put a lot more pressure on rents and rental prices. rents are going up. that's really a problem at lower incomes where people are competing with a new group of people who have more money to spend and rents going up means a real problem for very low-income people. host: we talk about assistance and breaks for home buyers, but what about renters? what kind of assistance is out there for them? guest: we do have a public housing system and we have vouchers and other such assistance for individuals of low-income. only about a quarter of the people eligible for those programs actually are able to get the benefit. not because they don't qualify but because tre is just not enough money be appropriated to pay for it. host: here's a story in usa today this morning -- what does this mean for home buyers and sell

environment other than giving money? >> that's how. >> has just giving money. >> that's it. >> money is one kind of speech. i was asked a similar question at a gathering recently and i said look, barack obama has shown there's a second model for politicians. you can build a base of small donors and as brad points out it can be a robust, even unlimited spending. >> any other thoughts on how much impact citizens have over the state of play? >> we are and what appear the five of us because we are in the more influential group of citizens. we have influence without having to give money. that's one of the things i point out, it went quick anecdote. when i was at the fec, used to coming to washington to spend a week or two in the summer, and the attacks of the department of agriculture. and i remember one year they were creating a debate topic and they would have these debates on campaign finance. i looked at the resolution being introduced to regulate campaign finance. the students thought that the regulation, their proposal would create more regulation than the current system had. but actually
is that comprehensive understanding of a society and, frankly, libya's a fairly friendly environment. this will surprise people. i've been there twice in the last year or so and i have to stop libyans from hugging me on the street when i say i'm an american. >> right. chris stevens was very well known for being incredibly present around tripoli and benghazi, for going for morning runs, for going to parties and breakfasts and doing all of the things that you just talked about. >> he was doing all the right things and there's no way to reduce risks to somebody who's doing the right things to zero. >> that -- >> you can manage the risk. you cannot completely zero out the risk. and this is extremely important for people to understand. this is a great tragedy as vice president biden said, but its a a tragedy that will happen every once in a while because you can't have zero risk. >> i just think there's db obviously there's no perfect security but there's a difference. i agree, i'm not disagreeing. >> one of the things that got a little lost in the hearing about the security requests and there was apparently
